Reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH) is an essential reducing agent and electron donor found in all forms of life (1). It serves as a cofactor in anabolic reactions driving the biosynthesis of all major cell components (ie lipid and nucleic acid synthesis) and the generation of reactive oxygen species (2). It plays an essential role in the activity of NADPH-dependent biosynthetic enzymes (3). Scientific applications of this product include enzymatic reactions, and pharmacological studies. It can be used as a cofactor in various diagnostic tests (e.g., ammonia, urea, creatine).
